v2.0, 09/12/2001, 3:00pm
 As I stand in shock of the recent events in the town where I work (DC), my
 heart goes out to those who have lost today.
 Updated all of the recipes for 1.09 and fixed the 'Recipes/recipes' spelling
 problem. Blizzard sure does enjoy nerfing things..

v1.4, 07/21/2001, 9:00pm
 There are conditions that affect whether or not crafting will work and 
 they're *weird*. Check out Section 4.1.2. Renamed Counter items to 
 Hit Power items to bring them into line with what people expect. Same goes
 for Safety -> `Safety`. Noted that non-magical weapons will craft properly. 

v1.3.2, 07/11/2001, 7:00pm
 Amended the Single-Player warning.

v1.3.1, 07/11/2001, 11:30am
 Added the warning about Single-Player mode.

v1.3, 07/09/2001, 10:30am
 Fixed a few more Recipes and recodified the Deadly class. Took out the word
 'magical' from item requirements, posted a note about that action, and 
 did some reformatting. Just enough to push up the version number. :) 

v1.2.2, 07/08/2001, 11:00pm
 It's the hour of FAQ updates! Added a paragraph about what happens if you 
 put extra jewels, gems, or runes into a crafting Recipe.

v1.2.1, 07/07/2001, 1:27a
 Corrected the `Caster` Belt Recipe.

v1.2, 07/04/2001, 9:33pm
 Corrected a problem with the formula for Safety Boots. 

v1.1, 07/04/2001, 6:00pm
 Formatted everything for posting and submitted to GameFAQs.

v1.0, 07/04/2001, 5:00pm
 This is actually the reason I started writing FAQs this afternoon.. I was
 assembling a big listing of all my info on crafted items, and correcting
 inaccuracy after innacuracy on a certain unnamed website (who refused my
 help!). hmph. I'll just put up my own info. :)

  2. Introduction
______________________________________________________________________________


Welcome to the D2 Expansion Crafted Items FAQ. While I was compiling various
information that I've acquired on D2, I realized that fully half of everything
you read about crafted items is complete crap. To that end, I'm establishing
this FAQ as the central resource for crafted item knowledge.

I'm pretty sure I have a handle on how they work, which I'll explain later,
but if anyone catches an inaccuracy, please email me about it. My email's down
in the Credits and Contact Info section, and I request that screenshots be
sent in to back up your points. :)

Okay, now that the happy intro is aside, let's get down to business.

  3. Quick intro on Crafted Items
______________________________________________________________________________

A Crafted Item is a new class of item for the D2 Expansion. Their names are
orange in color, and they have been around since the Beta was released.

Crafted Items fall somewhere between Rares and Sets. Like Set items, certain
modifiers will always be the same.. and like Rares, you will never have two
that are completely alike, as there are many random factors that get thrown
on, too.

A Crafted Item gets between one and five preset modifiers, and up to five more
random affixes that can alter the magical properties. These affixes aren't
shown - only the item's name is listed, like with Rares.

The real draw for Crafted Items is a way to use Runes, Gems, and Jewels all
together to create something truly useful for play. How they'll stack up to
Rares depends entirely on the mods.. Think of them as Rares that you can kind
of weight the deck a little for, demand that certain modifiers be on them.

  4. Crafted Item Breakdown      
______________________________________________________________________________


Now that we know what crafted items are, let's talk about how they're made.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| 4.1: Changes since the 1.09 patch                                          |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

*sighs*, where to begin.

Blizzard reorganized some of the equipment in the crafting sets, so that it's 
a little more uniform. Plate Mail is no longer part of the Caster set, since
most low-level Casters can't wear it, for example.

While doing this, Blizzard completely rearranged what runes are used in the 
crafting process, forcing a rewrite to occur.

On top of that, the effectiveness of several of the crafting preset mods has
been reduced. It could be argued that this was a rounding off of the numbers
(read as `rounding *down*`).. but that doesn't hold for, say, the Safety
recipes, where the resistance bonuses went from 5-15% down to 5-10%. 

I guess that would matter more if crafting normal items didn't suck to begin
with, but it just makes it an even more futile action now. gooooooo Blizzard.


** Other New Notes **
The elite recipes aren't ready yet. Likewise, the Deadly items haven't been
updated. I don't know if the old recipes are functional or not, but I've 
listed them as non-functional just to be safe. Nothing is sacred after 1.09. 


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| 4.2: Crafted Item Theory                                                   |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

A crafted item is made in the following fashion:
In a Horadric Cube, combine 1 magical item (weapon, armor, or jewelry), 1
perfect gem, 1 rune, and 1 jewel.

The choice of Perfect Gem controls what form of Crafted Item you're going to
make. All `Blood` items are made with Perfect Rubies, whereas all `Deadly`
items are made with Perfect Skulls, and so on.

The Rune that you use is varied. The jewel used can be any jewel, and has 
no effect on the crafting process.


Elite items can also be crafted, but the Recipes are different for them. 


When the Recipes say, for example, `8-15% chance of Deadly Strike`, it means
your crafted item will get a modifier between 8 and 15, such as 9% chance of
Deadly Strike. You will not get the range, 8-15.

Some crafted items can be re-crafted. Try doing that to increase the modifiers
that you recieve.

Just one more time, in case you missed it above - 


  ALL ITEMS USED FOR CRAFTING MUST BE MAGIC ITEMS!
           unless otherwise specified.
  
As I go through and updated for the 1.09 Recipes, I will keep old Recipes
that I haven't found current compliments for. 

Old Recipes will be marked with >> 's. 

Example:

New Recipe	blah blah
>> Old Recipe	  blah blah

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Blood items all have bonuses to life, life leeching ability, and most have an
added chance of Deadly Strike. Nice for Melee chars, especially the Elite
forms. Even if Leech is messed up in the Expansion, who cares if you have 40%
of it?

The Caster Recipes favor mages and other mana-dependant classes, but most
everyone can find some benefit from having added Mana Regen and Mana Steal.

This class of crafted items is pretty interesting; most everything comes with
penalties should the enemy dare to strike you. While this could be really cool
in PvP, I doubt that it will have much, if any, effect on gameplay.

Blizzard Entertainment, for some of the finest games around. A good part of
my life has been devoted to Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo.

GameFAQs.com, for providing the best online gaming resource that we have in
this troubled day and age. :)

MoonlightOwl, my darling wife, for catching my mistake on the caster belt
recipe. 

Tien Ryuu, and others, for letting me know that Single Player *does*
allow crafted items.

The many people who told me my recipes sucked, and made me update again.

Do you have additions or corrections for this FAQ? Send an email over to
<wingchild@home.com>. If you're correcting information about modifiers, or
showing off a new class of Crafted that I don't have listed yet, please send a
screenshot with your email. List the original item type and whether it's
normal, exceptional, or elite. Also list the formula used, and I'll read the
modifiers off the screenshot. That's the only way to keep good and current
information. :)

Don't know how to take a screenshot? Hit Print Screen while in D2, and you'll
find it saved as Screenshot001.jpg in your Diablo 2 game directory. Mail that
JPG to me, and corrections will happen ASAP. Full credit will be given to the
people responsible for contributions or corrections.
